Celebrating Bristol’s vibrant LGBT community, Bristol Pride Festival, now in its seventh year, takes place across the city from 1 – 10 July.

Pride Day will take place on Saturday 9 July, at the Bristol Amphitheatre and At-Bristol’s Millennium Square.  The streets will be bustling with local street food, market stores, onsite bars and more.  There will even be a cabaret stage featuring musical talent from across the UK.  At-Bristol and sponsors Irwin Mitchell will offer family friendly games, science exploration and kite making, and there will be a busy community area for services and groups to share more with the immediate community.  For those who are feeling energetic, there will be the chance to take part in numerous dance classes – from Zumba to Salsa, the team have got it covered.

The parade will begin at Castle Park at 11am before meandering through the streets of Bristol.  The culmination of the day will showcase over fifty local and international acts across three stages, including Wildflowers, fan favourite Lucy Spraggan, The Voice’s Tom Rickels, Little Boots and Lisa Stansfield.
